, and they raced back to columbia, convened a meeting of the democratic party and anointed edgar brown, a very powerful state senator, also from barnwell county, the home of jean thurmond, to be the democratic party nominee. within a day, there was an uneasy feeling that was going to grow and grow: that this somehow was not appropriate; that this small group of democratic party officials should not have anointed somebody; that, regardless of what state laws said, there was the feeling there ought to have been a primary, there ought to have been a way to let the people decide who their nominees should be. and it built and built, and senator thurmond -- by this time, he had been out of office for a couple of years; he finished his gubernatorial term in 1950 -- he had run for the senate against olin johnston, representative liz patterson's father, in the only race he ever lost, the only head-to-head race he ever lost and was a very successful lawyer in aiken. but he had kept speaking to civic groups, and people certainly knew that strom thurmond was around and they turned to him and he finally an

before we wrap up? yes, sir. >> [inaudible] after the defeat in 1924, and it was brown versus board of education in 1954. >> you have a great historical knowledge. that's something about davis in the bang. i -- in the back. i picked the ones with the contemporary politics, and before i get to davis, people say why don't you have wilke in there was he was an important losing candidate as well and he's credited with making sure the united states was prepared for world war ii because republicans did not wants the land lease agent to go through. he was asked to go to britain and come back and tell the american people as to why it's important to gave aide and comfort, and the congress was about ready to end the draft, and the draft extension passed by two votes. that was due to wilke. he change the history, but not politics. i did do essays on everybody in the een. there's short sketches, a thousand words a piece, on everybody nominated and who lost. i go into davis' career. he probably is america's greatest lawyer. that's what his mo is. he's argued more cases before the u.s. supreme co

[applause] >> and here's the end of the story. i love that story. and i love it because all the years later one of your mother's favorite compression is this. people don't change. she's actually wrong. your mother changed me. when it comes to herself, here's what never changed from high school to hard to harvard to being a lawyer for the how judiciary school
delirious ironies, individuals, there's one story in the 1840s of an individual, john brown dylan in indiana who stood before a crowd and gave a speech called the decline to miami. essential to what he was arguing was, you know, that it was really sad. what was interesting to me was there's documentation that miami community members were standing there in the crowd listening to this guy limit the fact that they were no longer there. and so it's the irony that i found i kept finding over and over again that maybe want to investigate it further. >> oklahoma city is the of the 1995 attack of the murrah building by timothy mcveigh. booktv visits the city to share the local literary culture of the area. >> hi. my name is joe entered and the acting curator of the john and mary nichols rare books and special collections at the university of oklahoma. this is a wonderful collection that was named in honor of john and mr. nichols the on the other longtime service to the university and to libraries. with the generous support we have established this collection on the campus of university of a global.
generation is more black and brown than the older generation. so you just add all these things together, and particularly from an older conservative perspective, it's easy to be distrustful of people who appear to be doing things the wrong way, demanding benefits and money and opportunities they have not yet earned, and just in general they're just not the america we built. and so you do that from tea partiers but we built this country. we worked hard. it's been taken away from us. spink i think with three minutes left, so one quick question. >> i work here at the institute. so the tea party members, they remember the cuyahoga river burning. they remember smoggy days, so why opposition to environmental protection? >> i think that's a great question. and i think it does get to the real core question, when people are conservatives and this idea of conservation, maybe they are related terms answer of not using more than you need are all ideas that people practice in their private lives in something, you become tea party members talked about clipping coupons which is him like a related sort
who are teaching black and brown children, what do you feel school committees can do to have the stomach racism if people want to appreciated or not that achievement gap is the residual effect of racism how do we of fact that in small communities? >> i have not had much of that chance to 99 and the university but when we teach teachers, we need to bring in parents and people from the community to talk about education and what are the issues. one native alaskan teachers said in the villages she wants them to listen about the problems the kids are facing. another situation, men should not have been successful but we're from low socio-economic backgrounds talk about what made them successful. inevitably they say it is when or more teachers that did it. with them to understand how strong the influence is and the difference they can make. we have to have a conversation sometimes if it is just in the school, you get this. is much easier to have a conversation if you bring in somebody from the outside to talk about the racism that the kids experienced in another school. [laughter] y
now and then there is an honorable liberal but they put on the brown shirts and they march. we have created a monster. we have no way to treat the people. they have tried and here i am. when they get together, they're very proud of the fact they would crush us if they could come a but they cannot. thank god for our constitution. >> the reports of my death are exaggerated. roosevelt won four times i think we are approaching a 50% of the work force working for the federal government. those liberals. >> i cannot hear him. >> is that better? >> maybe some limited think the reports of liberalism are exaggerated. fdr 13 reelection because much of the country was on his payroll and today we have 50% of the workforce directly or indirectly on the payroll. >> is your point* 50% that they don't pay taxes. >> no. 50% are getting paid by government. >> people vote for a lot of reasons. coupes the check this not answer all possibilities for all people. they may get a government check but love to hunt and fish. it is also 49% don't pay taxes but they respond to other motivations. dick morris and
in love? well, lucy brown, a scientist at albert einstein college of medicine in the bronx, did a terrific study. she recruited some couples who were newly, madly, deeply in love, in the first six months of a relationship that was going really well. and she had them come into the lab, and she asked them to bring two pictures, one of their sweetheart and another picture of a good friend with whom they had never had a sexual or amorous relationship. and then she had them look at the two pictures in the brain scanner with the idea that by looking at the differences between these two patterns of activation, she could determine what was particular to the new love, what was not just something about looking at a familiar face. and here's what she found. when you're looking at a picture of your new love when you're in that truly, madly, deeply state, you have a strong activation of the brain's pleasure circuit try. so years ago when the band roxie music sang love is the drug got a hook in me, well, basically, they were right. love shares some properties in this regard to drugs like cocaine and her
of black and white because that leads brown, yellow and red not even in the discussion, okay? so we need that, but we also need to consider the double jeopardy issues of women, okay? i think that was the thing that was, you know, contentious between zora and her contemporaries. she was attempting to simultaneously deal with women's issues. she left the issue of race to the men, thinking they would be a two-pronged attack against the prisons. the sexism thing, the other is something she was doing wasn't important. we've got to make sure that that same issue, that same double pronged attack takes place today. and now i will turn it over. >> it was very hard for me to look at what has happened to trayvon, because of course those of us of my generation have had to look at and feel this over and over and over again, and to field the endlessness. but i have been, i finally, you know, got myself together. and what i really feel is that there's a certain amount of hypocrisy in the country, in the leadership of the country, back and see this happen and say how horrible it indeed is without admitt
know and have been trying to get the book market's new book by little brown publishers is service a navy seal what war written with james horned fisher and we regret that we've ran out of books. i can come to light if we are not able to get books markets can sign one for you after the talk. marcus luttrell as a native of consul texas. he joined the navy in 1999, and after becoming a navy seal in 2002, he served in many dangerous special operations assignments around the world. after serving the two tours and iraq, he was deployed to afghanistan in the spring of 2005. for his actions during operation red wings, petty officer first class luttrell was awarded the navy plans for combat terrorism in 2006 by president george w. bush. after recovering from his wounds, he served as the second tour in iraq and received his discharge from the navy in june of 2007 and a very popular speaker you can see that by the great turnout tonight in 2010 to honor his comrades from operation red wing he established a lone survivor foundation dedicated to honoring and remembering american warriors by pro
of the experts to help them right away. tony brown, vice president in charge of purchasing said he would contact all the really supplies and asked them to check the components. now we are getting summer, mulally thought. lally would later call this meeting a defining moment in forged turner. he had always believed he saved the ford motor company, now he knew he would. all he needed was a plan. and as many people know, he put his plan together on little card and it was really simple. it was aggressively restructure the company to profitably, to operate profitably at the current demands. accelerate the deployment of new cars and trucks people actually want. finance the plan and work together as a teen. and the rest of the book pretty much tells the story of how they did that and how they were able to use that to get through this recent crisis without taking a taxpayer bailout, without going and asking washington to fix their problems for them, doing it themselves the old-fashioned way. and that's "american icon." so -- [applause] >> thank you. with that i'll take any questions anybody might have.
and then there's an honorable liberal left in universities but most of -- they put on their brown shirts and they marched. we've created a real monster in this country, and i don't know what to do with it because i don't have any ill-liberal way to treat those people. they have an ill-liberal way to treat me, and they tried, and frankly here i am. having a pretty good time of it. but they have -- when they get together, they have no -- they're very proud of the fact that they'd crush us if they could. but they can't. thank god for our constitution. >> i'm going to take the other side. i think, as mark twain said, the reports of my death are exaggerated. i think there's -- roosevelt won four times or three re-elections. i think we're approaching 50% of the work force that's directly or indirectly works for the federal government. liberals in the white house understand all this. >> i can't hear him. >> is that better? >> maybe so. >> start again. >> i think you reports of the demise of liberalism are exaggerated. fdr won three re-elections because he had much of the country on his payroll.
there is no agreement on the answer to that question. mike brown, a professor of planetary astronomy at caltech said in a review of marc's book that appeared in the "washington post" a range of this new field of astra biology is exhilarating . even though scientists are still learning how to sort out the hard science from the understandably anxious enthusiasm, getting to ride along with kauffman is an expansive joy. indeed, marks on enthusiasm for his subject is infectious. after reading his book, it is easy to end up believing, as he does, that it is only a matter of time before evidence of extraterrestrial life is found. let's see what you think after listening to him here this afternoon. ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming mark kaufman. [applause] >> thank you. now, let me just make sure we get this right. and okay. very good. hello, everybody. it is a delight to be here. i have been talking about this subject for some time now after the book came out, and i find it just wonderful to communicate with people about it. it is unlike a lot of other subjects. it is something that really
stanley brown. it is a major in the national guard. he wrote a journal on the day of the bombing that he very graciously shared with me. he hadn't shown it to anybody before. he is a tremendous asset to the book and i want to thank them very much, indeed.

of this put on their brown shirts and march. we have created a real monster in this country and i don't know what to do with it. they have a non liberal way to treat me and they tried and here i am. i am having a pretty good time of it. when they get together they have know -- they are very proud of the fact that they would crush us if they could but they can't. thank god for our constitution. >> tom dell dell. i will take the other side. i think as mark twain said the reports of my death are exaggerated. roosevelt won more times for reelection because -- i think we are approaching 50% of the work force directly or indirectly work for the federal government. in the white house, and -- >> i can't hear. >> is that better? >> maybe so. >> reports of the demise of liberalism are exaggerated. fdr won reelection because he had much of the country on his payroll. today we have 50% roughly of the work force directly or indirectly on the payroll of state, federal and local government. >> is your point that fifty% of the american people don't pay taxes? >> the point is fifty% of the people are getting
namara published by little brown. thank you very much. >> guest: thank you, brian. it was a pleasure. ..
during world war ii he. >> i am from the department of science at brown. thank you so much, professor goldsmith for your talk in your very insightful book. i have a question about your book. there seems to be a disconnect on one hand between congress and the general gao and inspector general. they constrain the presidency, on the paradox, it is to legitimate what the presidency is doing which is to increase public support for its policies. so i want to ask you. there is a tension between these two functions. the accountability function on one hand and on the other. the supreme court actually approved entering japanese americans. they have unjust policies by the presidency. >> that is a very good question. i guess it is fair to call it a paradox. the institution of constrain are also the institution of empowerment. what it means i at bottom, is that someone's actions are scrutinized by another, perhaps adversarial institution. they are scrutinized. the executive is forced to account and explain and justify them, and then another actor is april to decide whether it approves or doesn't a
themselves, major brown here who is with the sheriff's department. he had never seen anything like this. something unique about the spectacular violence that took place and the colossally unexpected and undeserved aspect of the fact that it happened here in oklahoma city. that is -- i want to state right said from the outset that i come to the subject with a certain humility. i'm not here to tell you anything that you don't already know. but i do think that there is an aspect to what happened in the way it has been told and retold over the years that has gotten lost. that is fundamentally the reason why this book that written in the first place, and it is what i want to talk to you about tonight. i feel that the city was let down fundamentally in a number of ways, both before the bombing and afterwards as well. this stark contrast with september 11 when you had an extremely active and well listens to victims community who managed to press for congressional hearings. obviously there was a huge amount of political activity around the calamity that happened then. you had the september 11th
motivated. and then layer on to that the number of white people who are teaching black and brown children across the united states. what are things that you feel like school communities can do to start to address the systemic racism that is there and that's, um, whether people want to appreciate it or not? you know, the achievement gap is the residual effect of racism. so how do we start to address that in small communities? >> well, you know, i haven't had much of a chance to do it because i've not been in a university that supported it. but i've always believed that when -- i've done it in some classes -- when we are teaching teachers, we need to bring in folk who -- parents and people from the community who may be activists in the community to talk about education and what are the issues. and this came to me because when i was in alaska, martha who's a wonderful native alaskan teacher, she said in the villages what she would like to do is just have the teachers listen to what is it, what are the problems that our kids are facing. so i believe i would try to really have -- and then in a
hopper that regulates public behavior. jim crow had to go and gave brown the board of education and those public schools, government schools. >> if i want to run a hotel and keep you out of want to have a white person hotel and the market would correct for that i would boycott that would tell and lots of people would come and the market was a sort that out better than the law. >> i look at the assets deployed by the other side which include most of the media and the whole educational establishment and then add demographics to that increasing numbers of people are getting transfer payments which intuitively none of them want to give up. no we can't to our side. i'm not good at sharing people on that. [laughter] thomas jefferson did say it's the national progress to say that for government to grow and liberty to yield. but the cost of that's happened in spite of that some of the thanks to this group i never thought that welfare would ever be repealed. who could be against that and then charles murray wrote losing ground, and the idea of losing ground change the way people think about things
and that is major stanley brown who is sitting here who was with the bomb squad. he was a major in the national guard. he wrote a journal on the day of the bombing that he very graciously shared with me and hadn't shown it to anybody before. a tremendous asset to the book and i want to recognize him and thank him very much indeed.

to get caught up in the did limb ma of black and white, it leaves brown, yellow, and red not even in the discussion. we need that, but we also need consider the double jeopardy of issues of women. okay. i think that was the thick that was, you know, contentious between zzora she was dealing with issues she left the issue of race to the men thinking it would be a two-pronged attack against the. they didn't see it that way. they thought that she wasn't in their camp doing the racism thing, then the sexism thing, the otherrism thing that she was doing wasn't important. we've got to make sure that same issue that same double-pronged attack, takes place today. and now i'll turn it over. >> i was -- it was very hard for me to look at what had happened to trayvon, because of course, those of us from my generation have had to look at and and feel this over and over and over. again, and to feel the endlessness, apparently of it. but i had been. i finally, you know, got myself together, and what i really feel is that there's a certain amount of hypocrisy in a country in the leadership of th
. i will. [applause] >> how you doing? >> ronald brown. my question is twofold, basically. one is i heard you do a radio interview last week, and in that interview you made an observation about the cry in the trayvon martin case. and you said that in your own opinion based on your experience that sounded like a death cry that you could relate to. and, of course, the experts came together unanimously and said that it clearly was not zimmerman's cry, but they didn't say that it was trayvon's either. can you speak to that a little more? and then, secondly, if you would -- to both of y'all, if you will. address this piece. historically black men in this country has always been an endangered species, okay? the day that we got on that slave ship to trayvon martin, post-trayvon martin to the latest. we've had several since trayvon martin. and there's an effort to raise this issue as a human rights violation. malcolm told us years ago we needed to take it before the world court. and there's an effort to try to make that a reality, and i want to know would you join in that effort? and i'd li
the inspired idea to take a minor character in the 19th century novel, tom brown's school boys, the boy. and make them come and making the central figure in what was essentially a history of the british empire up to the early 20th century. in other words, george macdonald fraser inserted flashman into the first afghan war that i think actually in one in the u.s. civil war and into madagascar where he winds up having sex with the most the tories queen of madagascar. so he did, he did against a forrest gump type of thing, that he inserted his character of his into all these real-life situations. woodhouse blunder that secret he read the first book, and he said something like the great sigh of contentment when you know that series is being born and you will love everyone of them. but what i learned about them, and the reason i like him is because when i come after the afghan invasion when everyone was suddenly an expert on afghan, graveyard of empire, posh turn, use backs, they are all, the dancing boys of kandahar, everyone isn't expert on kandahar -- afghanistan. i love reading george ma
